Plant Based World Conference & Expo
Happy February everyone! 2019 is already off to a fast start as more and more people around the world begin to pay attention to the benefits of living a plant-based life.
As I was scrolling through social media the other day I found a post that caught my attention. It was making the ironic point that in science fiction stories involving time travel everyone seems to always be so concerned about how some tiny act in the past can drastically change the present and disrupt life as we know it. The meme made the point that it is odd then that many people seem to have a hard time feeling like a small act now could have such a dramatic impact on the future of our real world.
I found this amusing, but at the same time it made me think about what makes this moment in history so special. People everywhere are realizing that the small actions we take on a day to day basis actually do impact the collective future in a major way… and if we want to live in a world we can all be proud of for generations to come, then we have to begin to make choices that are in line with the type of world we want to create.
This concept is the basis of why the Plant Based World event has come into being. It’s not about forcing anybody to make a massive lifestyle shift they are not ready for; in fact, it’s not about forcing anybody to do any one thing in particular. Rather, we have the belief that a better understanding of the benefits of adding more plants to any diet can have a far reaching effect on our lives and future as a civilization. And our purpose then is to be a resource and meeting place for all those who are interested in learning more about how to make a change, no matter how big or small.
Plant Based World registration is open, sponsors are signing on and we are just weeks away from releasing our full educational program and event agenda. Be sure to follow at www.plantbasedworldexpo.com!
